3D printers have been growing in both popularity and scope. Just a short while ago I wrote about 3D printers being used to reproduce human bones with a 3D-printed jaw bone replacement. In typical technological-growth patterns the technology is improving in folds, rapidly — something predicted long ago by Moore’s Law.
What nobody predicted in the near future though was that the home-building industry would get a MAJOR upgrade, to Home Printing. Yup, home printing. Thanks to the fast growth of 3D printing in additive manufacturing technology it is most-recently being applied to home manufacturing. Thanks to the inventive genius of Enrico Dini, founder of Moonlite UK and inventor of robotic building system D-Shape, we have entered a new era, where printing just got a LOT bigger.

Social networking site, Twitter is popular with its short messaging tweets. These tweets greet others and let users connect with others on a continuous basis. Twitter has become an attractive source not only for individuals but also for businesses. In fact search engines are also befriending with Twitter. After Microsoft’s Bing association with Twitter, another search engine, Yandex has joined hands with Twitter.

It is ranked No. 5 in search engines with more than 3 billion searches per day.

In response to on-going environmental group pressure Apple has decided to go Green. Making it a Green Apple. After years of persecution from groups like Greenpeace (an irony in itself given that many of Greenpeace’s dread-lock-sporting, bored-surbubanite-desperately-looking-for-a-cause Macbook owners) Apple is finally bending to group will and greening one of its largest facilities.
Apple’s data center in Maiden, NC is getting an eco-chic makeover with the largest set of end user-owned, on-site solar arrays in the country. This is in addition to its previous white cool-roof and LEED Platinum certificate from the U.S. Green Building Council, a level unparalleled by any other comparably-sized data center in the U.S notes Apple. Uh — and what was Greenpeace upset about again? The solar-reflective roof deflects much of the facilities cooling needs, a factor reduced again by their chilled-water storage system that allows for the offset of 10,400 kWh of electricity consumption to be transferred from peak to off-peak hours.
Apparently the U.S. Government hasn’t heard that privacy is dead.
Instead the California’s attorney general held a gathering of the world’s major smartphone companies: Apple, Google, HP, Microsoft, Amazon.com and Research in Motion, to decide on the future of smartphone-driven internet privacy. The goal for the attorney general was to cajole the leading smartphone manufacturers into reaching a universal agreement on privacy protection for the app-using mobile public.
This new universal agreement would force all app developers to conspicuously post their privacy policies to their downloading public, including details on what personal information they retrieve from their users and exactly how they will use it.
Ever get irritated that you can’t push/pull content between your computer and your social networks and sort it in handy desktop folders? Instead you have to manually update each as new content is added? Martin Pannier did. In response he created SocialFolders.
The SocialFolders app allows you to more easily manage content across your desktop and various social networks. It allows you to centrally manage your content, including backing up your photos, videos and docs. To put it more succinctly, MASHABLE summed it when they said — SocialFolders Is Like Dropbox for Social Media. If you’re not a MASHABLE fan, CNET also puts it simply when they say — It’s Photo Stream for everything“.
A blog is nothing but a journal published on the Web. It is an abbreviation of the term ‘Weblog’. Weblogs consists of short distinct entries, frequently updated and usually exhibited in reverse sequential order; so the most recent post appears first. Blogs are often the work of a single individual, although sometimes it can be created by small groups or be themed on a single subject.
The term was officially coined by Jorn Barger in 1997. The trend of weblogs escalated in 1999, when several companies and developers introduced easy blogging software and tools. Since then, till date the number of blogs has gone from a few thousand to over a 100 million.
